(From a reader): I don’t really have a budget for food, so connecting fasting with almsgiving requires some thought and planning. What I will try is to put myself on a cash budget for food during lent. Before I go shopping, I will take some of the money out and set aside for the poor. I can only buy what I need with what’s left over.

This Great Lent, we invite our readers to an intentional practice of the connection between fasting and almsgiving. Please email us at with details about how you plan to put the Almsgiving Challenge into practice. We’ll share your experience anonymously with our readers.
